    Perfect for aging, the Alphonse Mellot En Grand Champs Sancerre red wine is a beautiful Pinot Noir from France's Loire Valley. The beautiful deep crimson color of this wine only begins to hint at the complexities of the bold nose. The spicy aromas are defined by the smoky, dense and intensely layered bouquet. The palate of the Alphonse Mellot En Grand Champs Sancerre is defined by strong fruits: mulberries and cherries, and the spicy hint of pink peppercorns. These bold flavors melt into long lasting-silky tannins that with continue to evolve with age. This wine pairs perfectly with rich meats like Charolais beef as well as with spiced fruit desserts.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Tart red currant and cherry are allied to savory, salt-tinged veal stock in the satisfyingly rich aromas and sappy palate of the Mellot 2010 Sancerre rouge Grands Champs, which I tasted from the tank into which it had been assembled from cask. Notes of leather and smoked meat add interest while remaining in perspective, and as with the corresponding Demoiselle, an ample supply of juicy primary fruit successfully overrides the tannins. Mellot considers this to be his most Burgundian Pinot, though I can't personally make out why. I would anticipate at least half a dozen years' satisfaction.
